    Last month, we learned that Jay-Z, husband of American Idol guest star, Beyonce Knowles was planning to sell his one-percent ownership share of the Nets so he could pursue becoming a sports agent. And now, less than a month into his new business venture, he’s under investigation by the NFL! What’s going on? You’ll have to take the jump to find out!

    Russell Simmons recently unleashed a broadside against the NRA in the wake of the tragic Aurora shooting. In that tirade, Simmons went full-bore against the Second Amendment: “[T]he NRA has been successful at blocking attempts to pass reasonable legislation that would require background checks at gun-shows (currently there are none), as well as blocking people on the terror watch list and those who are mentally unstable from obtaining guns and putting an end to the sale of accessories like 100 round drums. They are also the group behind the "Stand Your Ground" law that George Zimmerman claims protects him from...

    The Radio Equalizer- Brian Maloney ^ | September 19th, 2005 | Brian Maloney
    Of our efforts to expose Air America's sleazy Enron-like corporate behavior, is it safe to assume conservatives are united in support? To a point, yes. There certainly are some, though, who'd rather not see this investigative effort become too successful. That's because the liberal radio network's programming has gone so far off the deep left end, it's now a GOP gold mine. By the same token, would Republicans want Rep. Jim McDermott of Seattle, or Sen. Ted Kennedy defeated? While having no impact on national political trends, the moonbat wing of the Democrat party provides a bounty of choice quotes...
